Title

Newton Square Road Sign 1: Cover Coughs & Sneezes

Description

Before "social distancing" became the norm, an illuminated road sign normally used for updating drivers about traffic conditions ahead or holiday messages is converted to give warnings about COVID19 such as "WASH & DISINFECT HANDS," "COVER COUGHS & SNEEZES," and "MORE INFO CDC.GOV/COVID19." The sign suggests how quickly the situation in Worcester accelerated from the early weeks of March.
Taken at edge of Newton Hill Park, near rotary at Newton Square.
